Tree sales support Boy Scout troop

The Tahoe City Boy Scout Troop 266, is selling freshly cut Christmas trees through Christmas Eve.

Wedged between McDonalds parking and the Tahoe City campground, the Scout lot will be open for business weekdays from 3 p.m. until dark, and weekends from 10 a.m. until dark. Look for the banner along the street to find the lot.

The tree sale is the Scouts’ largest fundraiser of the year, netting the youth group up to $5,000.

The scouts cut the trees themselves recently, and are charging the public a retail price of $4 per foot.

Funds from tree sales pay for the troop’s summer camps and other outdoor scout activities throughout the year. The Boy Scouts are chartered by the Kiwanis Club of North Lake Tahoe.
